The place was very conveniently located for my business meeting. Gillian was very friendly and receptive upon my arrival and went to great lengths to make my stay comfortable. She had a wealth of information about the surrounding area and was able to answer all my questions. She was also able to cater to my needs even when there was... More

Was lovely and so clise to Newlands rugby. The breakfast was the best i have had for years. I liked the idea of having healthy options that dont just include fruit and yoghurt. Would love to be there in summer to try that pool

Our room was clean and neat and everything in a perfect working condition. Our breakfasts were delicious with a very good choice of what to eat and we stood up after every breakfast completely satisfied. We could park our car safely every day. Access to and from the premises was very comfortable as guetes have their own remote and keys.... More

We stayed for 2 months at Wild Olive Guest House in the Cottage. The staff were kind and helpful in every way. The Cottage delightful, well appointed and spotlessly clean. Clean towels & sheets at frequent intervals Breakfasts were delicious & plentiful, plenty of choice, individually cooked for each guest. Highly recommended in every way.

Very impressive guest house in Newlands! Nice and clean. Friendly staff. Comfortable bed. Wifi and flat screen TV. Lovely old Cape house with wooden floors which gives you that home away from home feel. All in all we highly recommend Wild Olive guest house which has now become our little home for when we visit CT again!

Thoroughly enjoyed my 2-night stay with agreeable facilities at the guest house. Excellent breakfasts with friendly staff in attendance. Was able to walk to the Newlands rugby stadium. Found the secure parking a bit tight.

Our room was not soundproof. Could hear other people talking in their room. We are an elderly couple and were given an upstairs room - had to lug two big suitcases up and down the stairs. Also could smell food from the kitchen downstairs.

Dear Guest, We are very concerned that you were not satisfied with your stay at our house. We have many elderly people visiting, most of them are returning guests and staying for several weeks a year. Of course they prefer our rooms at ground level. We have 2 of them, even accessible by wheel chair, a third one will be... More
